CognitiveYoga Experience

The CognitiveYoga Experience is based on the cornerstone pillars of Awareness, Wisdom, and Transformation.

 

Awareness

Every change starts with awareness of patterns within the body-mind complex, life journey, and nature of existence.

Wisdom

This enhanced awareness, combined with consistent practice, leads to awakening of intuitive knowledge and creativity.

Transformation

The applied wisdom of inner experience and outer expression leads to a holistic transformation at all levels.

 

The philosophy and teachings of CognitiveYoga Academy are aimed at using the subtle aspects of the body, prana, and mind to experience consciousness beyond the sensorial world. But, the key emphasis is to integrate the insights in every interaction with awareness and intention. The aim is NOT to renounce or escape worldly life, but leverage it as a tool for spiritual evolution.

Core Principles

AWARENESS

Mindfulness

Amidst the information overload we live in, being present curbs the mind’s tendency to oscillate between the past and future. This brings in a sense of gratitude and appreciation for every moment.

Contemplation

Living life with a curious mindset and being an observer of one's thoughts, feelings, and actions helps recognise patterns. The insights help in understanding the root cause of limitations and gain clarity.

Concentration

In today’s digital age of distractions, a one-pointed state of mind is essential for meditation. This starts off with relaxation, sensory restraint, and blends into a flowing state of awareness.

 

WISDOM

Knowledge

There is a fountain of knowledge within defined by our perception, discernment, scriptural teachings, and laws of nature. It is not limited to the senses and intellect, but embodies every aspect of creation.

Simplicity

A simple and minimal approach to life helps expand the mind and reduce clutter at the psychological, energetic, and environmental level. This creates space for clarity and living with intention.

Pragmatism

Lofty ideals are potent guiding forces, but the can often become a mere intellectual pursuit. A practical approach to philosophy helps reduce conflict in the mind and adapt ancient wisdom to modern needs.

 

TRANSFORMATION

Discipline

While it is a human tendency to seek comfort, growth happens outside the comfort zone. Self-discipline is the key to freedom from one’s limiting beliefs and patterns.

Relaxation

The constant hustle in modern culture takes a toll on overall wellbeing. The need of the hour is restful awareness. A relaxed body and calm mind has the potential to sustain and live life with harmony.

Creativity

Everyone has a dormant faculty of creative potential in the subconscious. This manifests with meditative practices and opens a doorway to excellence in every action.
